Virgil Album, criticized for an album cover he made

Rapper Pop Smoke’s label released a posthumous album and it was designer Virgil Abloh who made the cover. However, fans pretty much hated the artwork and now the label has to come up with something new…

This is the cover we’re talking about:

Fans considered Virgil Abloh’s version “disrespectful” and “tacky”, considering it an offense to the artist. Shortly after this, label head Steven Victor announced that they are planning to make a change.

“He [Pop Smoke] wanted Virgil to lead creative, we fulfilled his wishes however, unfortunately, he’s not here to give his final approval his fans, are. You know why you love pop your voices are loud and clear he loved his fans and listened to his fans.”
